Customer Rating
Johnnie Walker Red Label was launched in its current form by brothers George and Alexander Walker in 1909, though it had existed as Walker's Special Old Highland Red Label for some years previously. Alexander blended a type of whisky which is more suited to mixing with soda than the heavier, more old-fashioned whiskies, and named it after his grandfather, who had started the family business in 1820. Today it is the world's most popular whisky and is sold in more than 200 markets world-wide.

Johnnie Walker Red Label Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Sour apple, toffee and light spice. Hints of vanilla sponge and caraway.

    Palate: Soft and gentle, with sweet grain, sour apple, vanilla cream and white pepper. Caramel and toffee sweetness develops.

    Finish: Short and sweet, with growing apple skin tannin and a touch of fruit.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Hints of fresh apple, pear and the spark of zest from the elegant Speyside malts. 

    Palate: Fruity sweetness, cinnamon and pepper crackling on the centre of your tongue.

    Finish: A sophisticated, smoky finish - the signature of all Johnnie Walker blends.

    I had Black Label first, and for me, there''s no comparison - Black is a huge jump in quality from Red Label. JW Red Label tastes light and cheap. If you''re looking for a great lighter blended scotch, go for Ballantine''s Finest; it runs circles around this stuff.

    Least end of Johnnie Walker products. Doest taste gud except for people who used to drink low end cheap stuff. One gud thing is the brand name and no doubt on quality.

    Johnnie (Sleep) Walker... This Speyside mix makes me sleep like a baby. Love the spicy peppery undertones of this blend. Smokey backbone makes it a starter to explore all the rest of the JW Brand

    I was surprised with this one, my favorite has always been black label (or blue of course), But tried this at a party where this is all they had, I really liked it''s smoothness... then the price.

    One of my favourites! JW Red never leaves my glass display. Moreover, it gives me that unexplainable taste and smoky aftertaste i''m always looking for as an islay single malt fanatic. Simply the best NAS out there!

    Its a decent enough budget blend. More than a hint of peat smokiness. Somewhat oily, rich and sweet. Well suited to mixing.

    Great value for the price. Rough, smokey, and not fruity. I like the oak and the malt notes of this whisky, far better than any other whiskies at the price. In Santiago de Chile you can find it at about $15 bucks.

    My favourite cheap price blended scotch, a very good all-round, reliable whiskey.

    Greatest whiskey to celebrate any moment of extreme happiness or to counteract any great moment of sadness - a true friend and companion for moderate drinkers to near teetotallers

    Had it in Poland for 59 zloties (12 quid) a litre bottle...this Eastern Europe is amazing hahahahaha! Whatever the price a great tipple:)

    Actually this fellow is better now than, say, 4-5 years ago. It is more freshy, slightly more paety. Great dram for everyday sipping.

  • Jack 13 February 2012

    In my opinion, JW Red Label is a decent Scotch. Unlike many other blends in the same category, this has got some personality to it, It's a very recognizable blend that goes well with a mixer but can just as easily be enjoyed straight.

    First bottle of Red Label I ever bought was a week ago and really like it. Its smooth and cheaper than other brands. I will be buying more of it......

  • Anonymous 5 October 2011

    I once was taken round the JW distillery and th blenders all rated Red label as the most complex of the labeloptions - which surprised me until they explained the blending process for red labe; takes the longest time to achieve and they all drank it out of choice. And you know, they are right, it's a classic blended SCotch as sale worldwide will confirm!
